about

The Wisdom Background and Parabolic Implications of Isaiah 6:9-10 in the Synoptics seeks to understand the divine act of fattening in Isaiah 6:9-10 and how it shapes one’s understanding of parables in the Synoptic Gospels. The author approaches the topic from within a wisdom matrix and lays an historical-exegetical foundation for understanding these and other critical passages in the New Testament. Readers will follow the Isaian text through varied traditions revealing a marvelous unity in terms of the divine action and the human condition.

Editorial Reviews

«Donald E. Hartley has attempted the interpretation of one of the most challenging passages in Scripture – Isaiah 6:9-10 – not only in its Old Testament context but also in its New Testament context. I appreciate the complexities of this passage and the difficult issues that attend its study because I have written a book on the passage myself. Dr. Hartley states that it is his intention to ‘take the next step’ and I believe that he has and has done so with exegetical precision and theological perception. He has produced an impressive study and I recommend it with pleasure.» (Craig A. Evans, Payzant Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Acadia Divinity College, Nova Scotia, Canada)
